application guide

Required Reading The Getting Started page is the best place to begin, followed by the other pages listed under “Information” in the header.

Account Name Register your account with your character’s first and last name with normal capitalization - i.e., “Ash Ketchum.” You can change it here if necessary.

Avatar & Mini-Profile Set your avatar (200x250) and fill out your mini-profile. The latter includes a smaller avatar (100x100), a link for your application (as well as plotter and tracker, if you choose to utilize those in the future), and slots for your character’s party pokémon. Please use the tiny overworld sprites rather than full-size battle sprites; they can be found on most Pokédex sites, such as PLDHnet.

Application Template Fill out the template provided below and begin a thread in the Applications forum. Your first post is reserved for your character’s profile, while the second post is dedicated to their pokémon team. Please do not alter the template coding in any way.

Application Content While our application does not require a specific minimum word count, keep in mind that it will be used to evaluate both your character and your writing ability. If the amount of content you provide is not adequate to gauge these two factors, you will be asked to expand upon it.

Additional Notes Click through the tabs on the application example below for helpful tips! Also, remember to proofread before submitting the final product.

Thread Title The title should simply be your character’s first and last name in normal capitalization. If you’d like, you can use the subtitle area to add their occupation or a small blurb.

Completion Status If your application is already complete as-is, submit away and wait for approval! If you are posting a work-in-progress, submit it with “WIP” somewhere in the title. You are responsible for removing the WIP label and notifying the admin when it’s ready for review. Please do not label it “done” or “finished.” Unfinished applications will be archived after a period of 7 days.

FIRSTNAME LASTNAME
AGE GENDER OCCUPATION

This is where you describe your character’s physical attributes. This section may be fairly brief, especially if you choose to use a face claim. However, there are some details that a drawing or photo might not convey.

For instance, how do they carry themselves? Do they have a proud, straight back, or do they slump and skulk about? Maybe they prance around energetically. Another useful tip is to describe your character’s usual mode of dress. Is your character the type to dress to the nines just to go grocery shopping? Do they like shorts because they’re comfy and easy to wear?

Adding details such as these can reveal far more about your character than if you simply listed off hair color, eye color, height, et cetera.
This is where you describe your character’s inner workings: what makes them tick. Tell us about their temperament, behaviors, motivations… The whole shebang!

Paradise looks for rich, three-dimensional characters that would be believable as real people. Their personality traits should reflect realistic strengths and weaknesses, and they should have desires and goals like any person would. Keep that in mind as you’re fleshing out your character!
This is where you describe your character’s background. While we don’t expect to get a full account of their life from birth to the present day, we do need at least a broad overview of the major events that have helped to shape their life. Where were they born? What was their childhood like? How did they get where they are now?

Remember to keep our setting in mind when fleshing out your character’s history. Paradise is set in the modern day in the fictional Eden region. Our version of the “pokémon world” is virtually identical to our own, except with the addition of pokémon.
Got anything else you’d like to add? Feel free to use this space for random facts, likes and dislikes, or anything else related to your character that doesn’t fall under the other sections.

Note that the code only produces an area for one pokémon. If you need to add extra for additional pokémon, simply copy and paste that section of the code again (Not including the "Pokémon Team" header). It should turn out looking like the above example. If for your sprite is so large that it fits off-center, you can add the following into the div coding directly preceding the image code and adjust the margins so that it becomes centered in the circle:
CODE
style="margin:0px 0px -10px -25px"

what comes next?

Reviewing Process The admin will review your application as soon as possible. If your character is approved, the application will be moved to the Trainer Profiles. Otherwise, if your application has some issues, they will be addressed via PM. If your application has been approved, it will simply be moved to the appropriate sub-forum of the Trainer Profiles.

Face Claims If you have a specific face claim for your character, don’t forget to make note of it on our Face Claim thread. We accept both animanga and real-life faces, and personal artwork is welcome as well.

Introduce Yourself While this definitely isn’t mandatory, we’d love to get to know you! If you want, create a thread in the introductions sub-forum and consider adding yourself to our Player Directory.

Start Roleplaying If your character is new to the region, Potpourri Harbor is a good place to begin, but you don’t necessarily have to make an “arrival” thread. Also, because all characters start with pokémon already in their possession, your first thread won’t be a mandatory interaction with a professor character or NPC at a lab.

Exploring Eden If your character is on a training journey, you might want to have them progress through the region’s locations in order. However, if you want to skip certain locations or simply have your character roam Eden as they please, feel free to do so!
